"And what is more important than knowledge?" asked the mind.

"Caring, and seeing with the heart," answered the soul.

Truth will always be truth,

regardless of unawareness, or disbelief, or lack of understanding.

sparklestarsbg7777.gif (14946 bytes)

Very few human beings receive the truth,
complete and staggering, by instant illumination.
Most acquire it on a small scale, fragment by fragment,
by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic.
One who forces time is pushed back by time;
one who yields to time finds time on her side.

Every tomorrow has two handles ~
You can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety
or the handle of faith.
Attitude is either your best friend or your worst enemy,
your greatest asset or your greatest liability.

[Fear is called the little death ~ it kills in tiny pieces!]

"No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars,
or sailed to an uncharted land,
or opened a new doorway for the human spirit."

It is only a tiny rosebud,
A flower of God's design;
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.

The secret of unfolding flowers
Is not known to such as I.
GOD opens this flower so sweetly,
When in my hands they fade and die.

If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
This flower of God's design,
Then how can I think I have wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?

So I'll trust in Him for His leading
Each moment of every day.
I will look to him for His guidance
Each step of the pilgrim way.

The pathway that lies before me,
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust Him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

They who are near me do not know that
you are nearer to me than they are...

Those who speak to me do not know that
my heart is full with your unspoken words...

Those who crowd in my path do not
know that I am walking alone with you...

They who love me do not know that
their love brings you to my heart...

Rabindranath Tagore

when lines chase themselves
across the plains of your face...
I will love you still.

When old age has slipped past us
and memories of long ago
seem more real than our future...
still, I will love you.

When you taste of death's icy-blast,
when it's relentless pull
will not let you go,
I will press your lips to mine,
give you this life's last breath,
and embrace you beyond the letting go...

and then, yes...

I will love you still.

A New Strength

There are times in every life
when we feel hurt or alone...
But I believe that these times
when we feel lost
and all around us seems
to be falling apart
are really bridges of growth.
We struggle and try to recapture
the security of what was,
but almost in spite of ourselves...
we emerge on the other side
with a new understanding,
a new awareness
a new strength.
It is almost as though
we must go through the pain
and the struggle
in order to grow
and reach new heights.
